Raiders RB Taiwan Jones moving to cornerback

Taiwain Jones has struggled to make his mark in the Raiders backfield in the two years he’s been with the team. Jones has the speed to excel at the position but it sorely lacks the size at 5-foot-10, 197 pounds and has struggled staying healthy. And he’s also been firmly in the shadows of Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson (even Marcel Reece) on the depth chart. But now Jones is...

Report: NFL not guaranteeing money for new Raiders stadium

The Raiders are the only Oakland-based sports franchise that seems willing to commit long term to Oakland and its Coliseum City proposal. The plan is pretty much the only hope at present for those who don’t want to see The Town completely abandoned by professional sports. But the question has always been about how the far-from-finalized project would be funded. It’s a question...

Warriors mulling Klay Thompson-for-Eric Gordon trade?

It’s been an unusual NBA trade deadline week in that there have been zero deals completed with less than 24 hours to go. But that doesn’t mean the rumors haven’t been abundant, mainly potential blockbusters centering around Dwight Howard and Josh Smith. Locally speaking, on Tuesday we shared the rumor that the Warriors might trade a couple of their minimum-salary players to...

Warriors shopping Kent Bazemore, Charles Jenkins, Jeremy Tyler?

The NBA’s trade deadline falls on Thursday. The Warriors aren’t expected to be major players (although, Eric Gordon rumors have been floated out there), but might they be interested in a couple smaller deals for financial purposes? As it stands, the Warriors’ team salary for this season is at approximately $71.2 million, putting them just over the luxury tax threshold of ...

Andrew Bogut now allowed to play back-to-backs

Since returning to the Warriors lineup less than a month ago, Andrew Bogut has been restricted by doctors from playing in back-to-backs until the all-star break to minimize stress on the center’s flimsy ankle. Now that the all-star break is history, that ban has been lifted as Bogut approaches the next level of his recovery. Per Marcus Thompson: A team official said the 7-foot...

Bartolo Colon finally speaks about PED suspension

Bartolo Colon on Tuesday broke his silence after his suspension for PEDs last year, speaking to the media about the 50-game ban that ended his season on Aug. 22. “The only thing I can say about last year is I apologize to everyone, even the fans, the team, the front office about what happened.” The right-hander tested positive for testosterone, but after pitching well in the...

Shocker: Matt Cain named Giants opening day starter

Giants manager Bruce Bochy announced on Monday that Matt Cain will be the team’s opening day starter April 1 against the Dodgers. In other news, the president’s house is white and the earth is round. Tim Lincecum has gotten the opening day nod the last four seasons, but Cain (16-5, 2.79 ERA, 1.04 WHIP) was the Giants’ most reliable pitcher in the rotation last season, starting...

Josh Reddick is lugging around Triple H’s WWE belt at A’s photo day

Josh Reddick is a big WWE fan. That much can be deciphered every time one hears Rowdy Roddy Piper’s theme played as Reddick’s walk-up music at the Coliseum. And then there’s Reddick’s antics during the team’s photo day Monday at Phoenix Municipal Stadium. That photo above is of the outfielder on Monday posing with an authentic WWE Championship belt that, according to BANG’s...
